The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I'm NOT a Square, I'm a CUBE

    My name is Ryan Pelletier, and I live in Alberta, Canada and compete in the CPU (Canadian IPF affalite). I did my first meet in July where I went 9/9 for 172.5kg/120kg/190kg for a 482.5kg total. I recently finish my second meet a couple a weeks ago where I went 9/9 with 202.5kg/140kg/220kg for a 562.5kg total. I've been training for about 11 months now and I have mainly trained in a sheiko style which has left me with a severly underdeveloped back. The week after the meet I strained my piraformis in training and cannot pull much over 405lbs currently. With switching to the cube method I hope to be able to train around the injury while still developing my lifts.

    RE Bench Day
    Bench
    5x1x123
    4x1x154
    3x1x185
    2x1x231
    1x1x262
    10x1x225
    4x1x225

    This was a hell of a lot harder than I wanted it to be. less then one minute between sets gave me a good pump in my triceps and low bar from arching. Wasn't happy that I missed my 5th rep.

    Lat Pulls
    5x1x52
    4x1x65
    3x1x78
    2x1x98
    1x1x111
    17x1x110
    12x1x110

    Got a good pump in my lats although I think it would have been more effective to do 20x5 instead of the way that I did it.

    OHP
    20x4xBar
    20x1x55
    17x1x70

    Did one to many sets as it was and I didn't even get a pump in my shoulders, the pump was in my triceps, so we now know where my problem lies

    Overall good workout hit a good 225 rep PR I had never done anything more than 5 reps with it so I was happy. With all the rep work with the shoulders and lat work today my shoulder deel better then they have been. Hopefully I'll correct my douchebags shoulder. Tomorrow is a Arms and cardio day (Yes, You read that right) to bring up some of the weaknesses, back work will also be in order

    Barbell Rows
    10x8x95

    Didn't really get a pump anywhere from these. 1 minute rest, I needed to concentrate on pulling shoulder blades together

    Rolling Tricep Extensions
    20x5xBar

    Good pump in my triceps. Harder than I thought but then again I haven't done any sort of rep work in the while.

    Hammer Curls
    20x1x20
    20x1x12
    20x3x10

    Extremely hard. Biceps have terrible conditioning. Pump in both bi's and tri's was fucking terrible couldn't move my arms.
